Broadly speaking, teaching resources may be everything that can be applied in the teaching process by teacher, including persons, properties, objects and information which support and serve for teaching. Narrowly speaking, teaching resources (study resources) mainly contain teaching materials, teaching environment and teaching backup system. In the present paper, teaching resources discussed refer to the narrowly defined teaching resources. In the fields of architectural design and interior design, virtual simulation teaching resources have been widely used for curriculum teaching. Nowadays, with the keen market competition and growing upgrading of hotel and banquet products, it has been an essential ability for hotel and catering administration staff to develop various kinds of special banquet products. Banquet Design course is a special course of hospitality management major in higher vocational colleges, designed under new changes of this industry. However, in the past Banquet Design teaching, students' design works are limited by existing real equipment resources in the case of applying traditional teaching resources. However, it is impossible for school to invest a large quantity of capitals to support students to consume real object teaching resources for banquet product design like a real operating hotel or banquet company. Thus the teaching effect is not obvious. Therefore, regarding this, the scientific application of virtual simulation teaching resources in Banquet Design course is discussed in this paper.
